The Freedom of Exercise

It’s been a rough month over here. Hell, it’s been a rough year and a half šŸ™ˆ. After struggling with my mental health through the pandemic, moving, and having the kids at home full-time, we all got Covid. Although the lingering physical effects of our illness took weeks to shake off, it has been hardContinue reading “The Freedom of Exercise”

To Take Care of Myself

In order to support my mental health, I’ve begun waking up early. Yep! Like 4:30am in the morning early. Gasp! Now I bet you’re wondering how waking up when it’s pitch black outside could actually make the day go better. Well, let me tell you. After a second session with our family hypnotherapist, she helpedContinue reading “To Take Care of Myself”

Out of Batteries

My friend recently told me, ā€œI feel like Iā€™m going to collapse, but the kids keep going.ā€ Anyone else feel this way? These kids seem to have everlasting batteries and no off switch. How do they do it?? I would give anything to have one ounce of their energy. Some days Iā€™m exhausted by likeContinue reading “Out of Batteries”

Good Enough

I had an epic post in mind for today. One that asked you to analyze the ways in which you give and receive love and how it affects your marriage. How do you navigate marital struggles when you and your spouse are not compatible in this way, and what does it mean for your marriage?Continue reading “Good Enough”

Pregnancy and the Flu

The funny thing about pregnancy is that it generally feels a lot like the flu. Discomfort, pain, nausea, vomiting, and possibly cramping. As mothers, when we get the flu, it’s not really the end of the world. At least for me. While the flu ravaged my family last weekend, I surprisingly felt almost exactly theContinue reading “Pregnancy and the Flu”

A Wacky Day

Today has been a wacky day. The kind of day where my socks don’t match, and the house looks messy, even though I’ve spent all day cleaning. The kind of day where no amount of sleep can actually make me feel less tired. And of course I’m not the only one affected. The girls haveContinue reading “A Wacky Day”

Will They Sleep?

There are two times of year that I absolutely detest. I used to not care as a child, but as a parent, Daylight Savings has become the dreaded behavioral shift in my household. Maybe if I didn’t have twins, it wouldn’t be such a big deal, but getting the girls asleep at the same timeContinue reading “Will They Sleep?”

The Aftermath

In the wake of illness and fatigue, the vacation laundry still needs to be done. I spent the last two days sleeping during nap time, but today, the cleaning beckoned. We had clothes strewn about every corner of the house because my children had gotten into our duffle bags, under the guise of “helping.” TheyContinue reading “The Aftermath”

Naptime: The end of an era

I think the twins are losing their nap, and I am not ready. Recently people have been asking me, “Are they still napping?” To which I reply, “This ends?? I still nap!” Well, I think the time is near. They’ve been fighting their naps for a while, and now they make so much noise inContinue reading “Naptime: The end of an era”
